Subject: not great
The DSO show was definitely superior, but the circumstances were different, Thurs. was a breezy 70 degree night when DSO played and everyone had just arrived, plenty of energy.. surviving the 103 degree heat,blistering sun and humidity on Friday took its toll... was hoping the sun going down would cool things down..no such luck, it was about 100 degrees throughout their set.
Subject: Did we see the same show? (Really 2.5 Stars)
However, after having been to numerous shows before and after this I feel confident in saying that this was not one of their better performances.
There were moments, such as FOTD and SS > 11 that were good but overall I can only rate this outing 2.5 stars.
Also, to address the question concerning DSO, I think that people draw comparisons because both bands played at the GOTV that year and the DSO show was far superior in my opinion.
I guess I just didn't feel any energy at all during this show, it was super slllooowww, and it seemed like the band was phoning it in, the jam in Let It Grow and Stella Blue (both of which are normally in my top 10 favorite songs of all time) is a case in point - just no "punch".
That being said, this recording is good quality and captures the show as best as possible. The speaker set up at GOTV made the band sound echo-y and thin, at least to me.
I dunno, maybe I am wrong, but this one just didn't do it for me and I've been to quite a few Grateful Dead and post-Dead related shows in my lifetime. I think the reason the show lacked that spark was the fact that it was nearly 110 degress that day and everyone - crowd, band, crew, everyone - was just totally sapped.

Subject: No comparison, really.
That said, this is a great recording. I'm just counting down the days until Raleigh and Simpsonville.
Subject: This is Terrific
On the negativity, I would like to let everyone have a say, good or bad, but consider this: Some might say JK is giving Phil, Bobby and all of us what we missed when Jerry himself could not play much of a lick because of the evil stuff. That is a good thing, and it should be recognized. GO JK!
Subject: A Great Show
Negativity is bad in all forms..even mine...
